While most of us had two weeks off during the New Year holidays, 2017-2018 Research Challenge participants were busy working on their final reports. For the first time in the history of the Russian stage of the competition, a final report submission rate was perfect – all 21 teams, which handed in their draft reports in December, managed to submit the final versions of their work on January 15.

In previous years, a fraction of teams would get disqualified from the competition due to the inability to submit their final work. Last season, for example, out of 26 student teams that submitted their draft reports only 17 ended up completing their work.

The CFA Institute Research Challenge is a tough competition and participants need to show not only their knowledge of a financial analysis, but other valuable skills, including determination, team work, and communication skills. Students worked with their industry mentors, most of whom are CFA charterholders. The mentors helped students by providing valuable comments and reviewing final reports prior to the submission date.

Now, as the final reports are submitted, the team of graders comprised from members of the CFA Russia community will evaluate the reports. On February 15, the list of six finalists will be announced. These teams will be invited to take part in the finals of the Russian stage of the competition on March 1.

CFA Association Russia would like to take a minute and thank all volunteers, who helped the society to put together the Russian stage of the 2017-2018 CFA Institute Research Challenge.

The CFA Institute Research Challenge is a competition between university teams that research a designated publically traded company, prepare a written report on that company and then present their findings to a panel of judges. The competition has three levels: local, regional, and global. Winners at the local level advance to compete against teams within their geographic region at the regional level. Then, the winning teams at the regional level go on to compete at the global level until finally one team is declared a winner at the global level.
